Description

General description

Transferrin is an 80 kDa serum glycoprotein, which is expressed in hepatocytes. The gene is located on human chromosome 3q22.1.

Application

Transferrin Human has been used to perform immunoprecipitation measurements. It has also been used for the preparation of essential 8 medium.

Packaging

1, 5 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Human transferrin was shown to promote allogeneic chimerism in mice after irradiation and transplantation of incompatible bone marrow.

Transferrin facilitates the transfer of iron to erythron and peripheral tissues. It stimulates the proliferation of human lymphocytes. Mutations in this gene are linked to atransferrinemia.
